How To Go Home (a lie) | Nadijah Robinson
print images, acrylic, graphite, gel medium on wood, 22x18 in, 2014  
Artist Statement: 
"How To Go Home (a lie) is a fabrication of the successful realization of an impossible desire. "Home" remains an intangible place, an elusive image, idea, or feeling that remains in the past, if it ever existed at all. “Home” becomes a site of projections of deep desires for safety, escape, belonging, and where to find all that was lost or stolen. Using print images from old Life Magazines for their idyllic and nostalgic quality, the collage frequently breaks with reality and reveals its construction.”
